SACC Dallas is excited to invite You all to an evening with Sandy Lobenstein from Toyota. Sandy will be presenting to us how Toyota are transitioning from a traditional car company to a mobility company.
This is an exciting time to be in the auto industry. Those that follow the business know that the amount of technology in cars has been growing exponentially. Toyota’s global vision is to use that technology to create a future where individuals, cars and communities operate together to enrich lives and move people safely and responsibly from place to place. That’s a big challenge, and Toyota is well on its way.
The recent safety technology evolution is now becoming a revolution of the automobile as we embark on autonomy. The vehicle as we know it is transforming into a means of getting around that futurists have dreamed about for a long time. To realize that future, cars must become connected, and Toyota is on the leading edge of this revolution.
